We talk with 5-time Race Across America participant and ultra cycling veteran, Franz Preihs of Austria, who holds the lifelong RAAM number 351. Franz made his first appearance in the world’s longest ultra cycling race many years ago in 2008, finishing in 4th place even though he had a bad crash in Colorado after just a third of the distance and had to keep pedaling with a broken collarbone.
Franz is not only known for his ultra cycling achievements and his extraordinary lifestyle with vegan nutrition and tattoos all over his body, he is also a personal trainer and adventurer. He is currently preparing for his 6th participation in RAAM and an expedition to Mount Denali in the Antarctic. Let's roll! 🚲💨
